Economic Growth | Job Creation

The fundamentals of our economy are sound. Although, we face many challenges, with challenges come opportunities. One of the main promises that President Trump was elected on and is rapidly delivering is economic growth and job creation. By focusing on less government regulation, reducing taxes and putting energy independence, rebuilding our Armed Services, national defense, banking and the housing sector first, we are seeing a growing and free economic environment that is fostering consumer confidence. Once again, businesses and individuals are making decisions that are growing our economy. Remember, every dollar that transfers from the government to the private sector improves our economy.

Putting money in the hands of individuals and not the government nurtures our rising entrepreneurial spirit, which in turn creates jobs and increases consumer confidence. The American entrepreneurial spirit made our country the envy of the world and the land of opportunity. Excessive and wasteful government spending over many Administrations has helped to create a $20 trillion debt, which is unsustainable, and is the root problem when looking at debt and deficits. The present administration emphasizes that the federal government must be responsible and not spend money they don't have. The federal government, like families, must live within its means. Wasteful spending means increased and higher taxes and results in borrowing. Solvent households and businesses understand the basic principle that when you cut spending, you reduce debt and deficits.

President Reagan was correct when he said "No" to certain programs his administration deemed useless. Every successful business knows when to cut back. New rules, new regulations, and programs that were introduced by previous Administrations added additional debt, hinder our workforce, and make us less competitive in a global world.

Economic growth is the best jobs program. The prosperous and thriving economy we are now experiencing is creating a prosperous and thriving job market. Now is the time to remember and utilize the lessons learned from President Reagan's approach to our economy; his philosophy is perfect for today's economic environment. Reagan employed a simple and logical approach to the economy that worked and helped create over 16 million jobs in the 1980s. The current administration's approach to our economy is working for today’s economic environment, as it also includes bringing together a diverse group of individuals: CEO's, union leaders, educators, minority leaders, law enforcement, religious leaders to learn and understand each and everyone's needs.
